Plastic milling on homemade CNC # CNC1000
I made this CNC machine myself in 2015, videos of the same year. For a long time I was asked to make a video on the assembly of this machine, later my hard drive broke, by some miracle I found some materials on this machine on another medium. After almost 4 years I will publish the materials, as I did with my own hands a CNC machine tool from the available materials.
These were successful doubles, the first attempts to mill plastic on the CNC. Two-way milling cutter for wood, for plastic it is better to use a single-cutter, because plastic melts and sticks to the milling cutter. If plastic chips stick to the mill, then the mill will most likely break or turn black from overheating.
Today, instead of round guides, the printer received square, using a conventional aluminum profile tube with a cross section of 20 * 20 mm. Bearings roll along the pipe 623zz. All plastic parts were printed on the same printer before it was altered.
A friend said like acoo kie, his wife said some windows :) And yet they spin!
Candles in the shape of eggs perfectly complement the Easter holiday. The unusual shape of the candle very much like the grandmother.
I decided to update the old, already charred stand for the soldering iron. Simple and does not take up much space on the table.
This cool garland is assembled according to the design of Alex Hyvera using Arduino and an address LED strip. The garland has many interesting effects, a running text, several games and the ability to control all this from a mobile phone.
